Some time ago Sybrand and I decided on new curtains for 2 rooms in our house. He could choose the colors for the study and I could choose the colors for the master bedroom. I was very happy to choose a rustic brown color and Sybrand choose "light blue". I suggested "sapphire blue" but he stuck to "light blue". (I am sure it was sapphire blue though). In the end we were very happy with each others color choices and there was no (further) argument. lol
However that got me thinking about the different way men and woman see colors. It seems that I am definitely not the only one with this question - Do men and woman see the same colors? I came across an article When it Comes to Color, Men & Women Aren't Seeing Eye to Eye that discussed this topic in detail.
Have a look at the photo at the top of this Blog. It is part of one of my color charts of embroidery thread in the office. There are multiple shades of colors that enable me to choose just the right shade for a project. And being a meticulous person I would like to know the name (or at least the color number) of each shade. Just reading the descriptive name of these colors makes the selection of the "right" color feel like a journey into an exotic land.
BLUE becomes Cambridge Blue, Capri, Caribbean amber, Carolina blue, Cerulean, Cobalt blue and Columbia blue. BROWN becomes carob, walnut, chocolate (love this one), caramel, cinnamon, mocha, pecan, rustic and cedar. Yip, feels like that exotic trip.
The article actually provides a lovely scientific answer to this question. BUT once all is said and done, it is not the little things in life that we disagree on but the many interesting ways to see things through the eyes of others.
Vive la différence!!
